JIM FURYK: Lift, clean and place. We were using the European R & A rules. We used to have a thing on our lift, clean and place where you could mark it, lift clean and place it, and if you didn't like it you could keep moving it around until you didn't like your lie.
In Europe now we don't do that. Once you set it down the ball is in play and you can't touch it. That's how Europe has always done it. I wasn't aware of it. I was jockeying my ball around the first couple days. No one noticed somehow.
One of the rules officials, Mike Shea, came up to me Friday night, and me and Mike Weir and a couple other guys who play the U.S. Tour, he said, Just so there's no confusion, the rule is different here than we have at home.
And he told me, and I raised my hand. They had been talking about it for two days. I knew I was going to get DQ'd in the morning. I finished out as a marker for two days, flew home, and ever since they've treated me phenomenally. They're kind of like, "You're an idiot," but I get treated really well.
JOEL SCHUCHMANN: Jim Furyk, thanks.
